puts families first with a groundbreaking roster of commercial-free preschool programming created by Canadians for Canadians. CBC Television's weekday mornings are tied together with Kids' Canada hosted interstitials - which celebrate the geographic and cultural diversity of our country.
CBC Television works with the finest producers of children's programming from across Canada to create original, unforgettable programs that become part of the next generation's cultural landscape. The shows are created to mirror a child's world, as well as to open a window to new worlds of discovery and imagination. They encourage children to feel great about themselves, celebrate their accomplishments and nurtures their most important friendship - the one they have with themselves.
In September 2007, Patty joined forces with Bobb in an exciting evolution of CBC's highly rated preschool block.
